Sacramento, known for a long time as ‘The City of Trees’, was ranked thirteenth in the country for filling a highly-populated area abundant with high-quality, accessible parks.

Some studies have associated parks with a lower rate of crime. “Parks are essential for our physical and mental well-being.” Read about the park ranking nationwide, on Access Sacramento.
